Footage of the rare Japanese medal game Ganbare! Marin-kun from Capcom. Captured from the PCB by The Dumping Union. http://www.mameworld.info/ubbthreads/showflat.php?Number=300259 The rare Capcom game arrived from Japan. It is called Ganbare Marin-kun, the final and probably rarest game released on CPS1. I don't know anyone who had even heard of it until it showed up for sale. It's a medal game but along with Tobikose Jumpman and Alien, the best of them I have seen. The music rips off several... Topics: がんばれ!マリン君, Ganbare! Marin-kun, Ganbare!

Vectorman is set in a future where the Earth got so trashed that humans left the planet; robots (orbots?) were left behind to clean shit up so when the humans get back, the place is nice and neat (I was wondering where Pixar got the idea). While Vectorman was dumping trash on the sun, his supervisor was the victim of a workplace accident that caused him to turn evil and want to destroy the world or something. Vectorman returns from his trip hoping for a nice break but finds out that NOW HE HAS... Topics: let's play, MeccaPrime, Vectorman 1 and 2
ObsCure is a survival horror video game developed by Hydravision Entertainment and published by Microïds in 2004. It mocks the Teen Movie horror genre (ex: The Faculty) and each character you control is an stupid stereotype. The twist is that you manage two characters at once and each of them has a special ability. The other thing is that most of the monsters are fueled by Darkness, so you need to light them up before you can kill them. Original Archived Let's Play available at the Let's Play...

Speed run of The Legend of Zelda, 2nd Quest, done on February 1 2006. Available in 4 versions: low quality, normal quality, and 60fps high/insane quality. Author's comments: After I finished my 22% game in Prime, I was trying to decide what game to run next. I had a couple ideas, but this wasn't one of them. I decided to do this game because no one wanted to run the second quest and Radix asked me. How could I possibly turn him down? Well, here it is, a second quest run of Zelda 1 with no...

This is Resident Evil 1 for the Gameboy Color. Stop racking your brain trying to recall playing this in your childhood, because it was never released! Until now... Following the success of the original PlayStation edition Resident Evil in 1996, Capcom expanded the game in a number of ports - one of those planned was for the Game Boy Color. In 1999, HotGen Studios, Ltd., a company in the United Kingdom, was selected by Capcom to port the game. A game that until recently was probably one of the...

Resident Evil (titled "Biohazard" in Japan) was released on the Playstation in 1996 and was directed by the now-heralded Shinji Mikami. It was one of the very first games to establish the phrase "survival horror." Known for its sluggish controls and bad voice acting, the classic game has now sold over 2.7 million copies. It established the concepts and characters that would stick around all the way to the recent Resident Evil 5, such as Chris Redfield, Albert Wesker and the...

Submission: http://tasvideos.org/3385S.html Publication: http://tasvideos.org/1967M.html The Mega Man Battle Network series envisions Mega Man and his friends and enemies as computer programs rather than robots. It also changes gameplay from platformer to RPG, with battle mechanics similar to collectible card games. The second game has Lan and Mega Man fighting a terrorist organization called Gospel, but this TAS divulges little of the plot. mtvf1 races through the game, avoiding unnecessary...

The Warriors is a 3D Brawler from Rockstar Games released in late 2005 for the PS2 and XBox systems. It's the 3D transition of the side-scrolling beat 'em up that Final Fight: Streetwise really should have been. The Warriors is based on a movie from 1979, which is in turn based on a book from 1965. The Warriors are a street gang based out of Coney Island, and the events of the game/movie cover their interactions with the other gangs of New York.

Speed run of The Legend of Zelda, done during July 2003. Uses 2nd controller Up+A warping. Available in 3 versions: low quality, normal quality, and 60fps high quality. Author's comments: I know that this time isn't much to write home about anymore, but before the advent of the emulator runs, this was the fastest Zelda time around by a pretty healthy margin. At the time that I posted this at TG, I claimed a cash bounty by breaking 36 minutes. The best time back then was over 37! Too many of... Topics: Legend of Zelda: Zelda 1, NES
Single-segment speed run of Resident Evil: Director's Cut on arrange mode, done on October 31 2004. Available in three versions: low quality, normal quality, and 60 fps high quality. Author's comments: My biggest gripes about using Chris compared to Jill is the loss of 2 inventory slots and the lack of the Bazooka. His perk, though, is his increased health - which equiates to 1-2 extra hits in some cases. With that said, I end up needing the Shotgun for a good portion of the run, and also for...
